Many Moods Of The Upsetters is a great collection of rare Upsetters grooves with a few vocal tracks thrown in. It was originally released in Jamaica on Upsetter, then in England on the Economy label and then again on Pama as The Best Of Lee Perry & The Upsetters Vol. 2. Highlights include Carl Dawkins' groovy "Cloud Nine", the skanking "Soul Stew ", and the wonderful "Games People Play" which features steel drums for an irie calypso sound. Another highlight of this LP are the hilarious photos on the front cover, especially "greeting mood" and "invisible mood".
